School children are often prompted to fold pieces of paper "hot dog" or "hamburger" style; the former being folded lengthwise and the latter being quickly devoured. Fold a meal with today's Groupon: for $9, you get $18 worth of burgers, poutine, and your choice of one beer at Corner Burger in Brooklyn. Today's Groupon is not valid on Saturday after 6 p.m.
The chefs at Corner Burger sling a long list of hamburger treats and poutine delights out of their convenient Park Slope eatery. Create a custom burger by choosing a hamburger patty, turkey burger, or veggie patty ($6.50), then layering on cheese ($0.75/slice) and flavor enhancers such as bacon, avocado, or a fried egg on top ($0.75–$1.25). Unconstructive eatists can opt for a pre-planned specialty burger, including the Texas burger with pepper jack cheese and a fried egg ($8.50) or the Soprano burger, which layers prosciutto, provolone, and roasted red peppers atop an opera-singing garlic bun ($9.75). Scale mountains of classic, Montreal–style poutine fries and sample the natural wonder of cheese curd boulders and gravy waterfalls ($7.00–$8.50). Pair solid refreshment with liquid sustenance from the eatery's beer and wine bar, stocked with such brewski brands as Hoegaarden, Brooklyn Brewery, and Yuengling.
Perfect for chic shopping, people watching, or flagging down the Cash Cab, Corner Burger's Park Slope location is a short trip from the 4th & 9th subway station, smack dab in the middle of the 5th Avenue shopping district.
Burgers get a creative spin at Corner Burger. The family-friendly eatery's long list of specialty burgers includes choices like the Soprano burger, a half-pound burger topped with prosciutto, provolone, and roasted red pepper on a toasted garlic bun. The Carolina burger gets topped with sweet pulled pork, and the Texas gets a fried egg and pepper jack cheese. Diners can also build their own burger, choosing from turkey or veggie selections along with the standard beef patty. To make it a meal, diners can choose from fried pickle chips, waffle fries, and housemade onion rings. And while burgers might be in the name, diners should also try Corner Burger's other specialty: poutine, which includes layers of french fries, fresh cheese curds, and gravy. And that's just the classic. Other poutine options toss in goat cheese or feta, or pulled pork and barbecue sauce.
